How to Root Vivo iQOO 9/Pro with Magisk Patched Boot.img


In this guide, we will show you the steps to root your Vivo iQOO 9/Pro via Magisk Patched Boot.img. While the device is quite popular among the general consumer, tech enthusiasts have not been able to echo the same thought process.

So now that we’ve passed the first check mark, what’s next? Well, it goes without saying that the ability to access the system partition has always been at the top of the priority queue for tech geeks. And we can’t blame them either because there’s no better feeling than bringing a plethora of mods and tweaks to your device. Without further ado, let’s start with the steps to root your Vivo iQOO 9/Pro via Magisk Patched Boot.img. Follow along.
